More Blu-Jason in June

High Def Digest is reporting both Friday the 13th Part 2 and Part III (2-D version only) will be debuting on Blu-ray in America on June 16th from Paramount. Both in 1080p video with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio. Where's the original mono?

Quoting from HDD: "Extras on 'Part 2' will mirror the previous DVD, including two featurettes, newly-produced "missing murder scenes" and the original trailer. Unlike the domestic DVD re-issue of 'Part 3'...the Blu-ray will include the bonus materials found on the overseas version, including three featurettes ("Fresh Cuts: 3D Terror ," "Legacy of the Mask," "Slasher Films: Going for the Jugular"), "Lost Tales from Camp Blood, Part 3", short films, and the trailer."

Both films have been on British and Australian Blu-ray for months now, so it's nice to see U.S. bows, but I'm waiting for the inevitable Parts 1-8 box set...again. Also both have been confirmed to have correct widescreen matting on Blu-ray (unlike Part 1), assuming Paramount uses the same sources.

No comments: you dare tread upon the staircase?
